Team Ninja seems to be expanding their monster repertoire into the more traditionally western, with the newest enemy reveal: the werewolf.
*Sigh* This is the link for the screenshots: http://media.xbox360.ign.co...
thanks for the link, sweet screen shots.
easily most anticipated xbox game. at least until gears can knock it off the top spot
the stranger th creatures the better. God bless the japanese, brilliant people and always creative.
Werewolves? Interesting. Anyway, I hope Itagaki gets it right the first time and doesn't reissue any NGII Black or Green versions of the game.
Too bad the gameplay doesn't actually look like that. That's one thing I hate about Tecmo. Their constant bullshots. I remember what they did for Sigma, they released a bunch of screens that didn't resemble the gameplay at all. All I can say is, all pictures without a HUD are bullshots.
yeah it's become pretty obvious that the only screens that resemble the gameplay are the actual gameplay screens taken from GAMEPLAY vids
videos look 10x better than these screen shots GT + K2 = BULLSHOTS
So that means all those Gran Turismo 5 screenshots are fake? I knew that game can't look as good as real life.
Rememeber the original on XBOX was not a big seller. Neither was Ninja Gaiden Sigma.
I've see this game in some top 10 hottest list of 2008. I'm not too sure.
There's always those games that are a big deal to some hardcore gamers, but the mainstream don't see it that way.
keep on saying that this game will sell for sure
and ive actually played the game.
but i bet 2 will be better
And it didn't look Anything like the bullshots posted by Tecmo. I don't expect this photo to be representative of the game either. Watch "Flowers and Blood" from the newest build in Hi-Res: http://media.xbox360.ign.co... And then look at this photo. http://media.xbox360.ign.co... Feel like you're staring at two different games yet?
dude horrible example, i just saw the vid and imo it resembles the screen to a pulp.
actually no it doesn't
This just gets better and better. Im becoming a bigger and bigger fan of the art direction. Im glad they've gone to this kind of cartoon-quality game-world.
Just stunning, this is going to be a massive game. I cant wait to play it.
Its all the color. So many games like this endup being all green and brown. This game is so vibrant and pretty.
Bubbles up for you. Its the artists that are making this game look so great.
This is a BULLSHOT, for sure.
Man! This game needs to come sooner!
why the disagrees, it looks to be a good game.
jelious yet bullshots...that..that guess what keep crying because you will never get this game muhahahaha
You're dead-on correct. Ninja Gaiden is proving to be a super exciting stunning game.
There is no denying that gamers want it so badly. The press is going to love this game, and so are gamers.
You guys keep passing of our screenshots of Resistance 2, Killzone 2 and many others as bullshots even when they are proven not to be but you guys say these are real even though they look nothing like the videos and they have no HUD which should be a obvious sign of them being bull shots.
looks week. I have Sigma on my PS3 and its ok. Too many good games coming to worry about a rental. lmao. TYhis is not that big of a game. If it was I would care about it. O wait, I ahve a PS3 and will be getting Gears 2. I dont care about 10 hour Ninja Gaiden with horrible dialogue. This game will be ok. I guarantee it takes a certain tast. I dont like Sigma.
actually no it doesn't"
i'm guessing you didn't follow his link?
also sinner, i meant whats up with the disagrees you got from an earlier comment.
I guareentee the game will look 10x more bad ass in motion if you know how to play it. I cant wait, NG was my favorite xbox game and I cant wait to see what they can do with 360 hardware. This game will be awsome. That is the ingame engine just from different angles. you wuldent want to play the game with that camera itd be too hard. I think they may be putting in a more cinematic camera tho when you kill the enimies, kinda like assassins creed or heavenly sword. It looks really pretty, look at that fountian(of water). Cant wait to chop some limbs.
the best combat in this type of game. Blows DMCand the like away. Dont say ist not a good game cause your not good at it, or mabe you havent played it. NG1 was one of the best games of the last generation. ll buy it on day one. I see this game selling way better than the original, especially with microsoft behind it and their extra advertising money. Regardless of sales im pretty sure this will be one of the best games this generation too. it sure looks that way.
Ninja Gaiden and DMC are both awesome games to the action game Genre. If you think the combat blows DMC away then it's you who hasn't taken the time out to explore how huge DMC combat is. There is a massive amount of freedom within the DMC engine that Ninja Gaiden doesn't come close. That being said, the combat is great in Gaiden but in the past you have been "on rails" Combos were set with no room for adaptability save throwing a shuriken here and there. I don't know if number 2 will be the same, hopefully they will add a bit more freedom in moves. I thought I read somewhere that the weapons couldn't be changed on the fly. Can anyone confirm this? Although I had no problems with Gaiden, black and Sigma if they do let you change weapons mid combo then this could shape up to be a truely exceptional incredible game. I'm looking forward to Gaiden 2, as long as it lives up to it's predecesors and adds a little more (other than Claret... Anyone else get visions of Soldier of fortune when they see some of these shots?) it's going to be Superb! EDIT: I didn't disagree
A combat system is more than just being able to switch weapons on the fly. There is way more, and way more intricate combo system in NInja Gaiden, which is prolly the biggest factor in combat. That being said they're both top of the line action games.
dmc is more static and set in stone. Ng has a free form system. DMC is about combos, Itagi said Ng wasnt about combos but how you finish your enimies. In Ng you dont just stary hacking like DMC, you jump off of two enimies heads, run along two walls and jump off and slice the floating scorpion guy cause if you just start pressing x you gonna die.
@The Closing, I understand that there's more to a combat game than switching weapons mid combo BUT that adds to the diversity of the DMC engine. You aren't stuck with a pre-determined set of moves as you are with NG. If you want to start a 3 hit combo, lift the enemy into the air, perform an air combo, grab the enemy while falling, perform a different air combo, unload your charged hand cannon followed by a downward slash, change weapon and hit up some more combos YOU CAN!
NG1 was on rails, you started a combo and either continued through with it or fluffed it. Hopefully NG2 will allow a little more freedom. Allow you to cut half way through a combo into a different one.
@poopface1 I think you have your games messed up mate NG is the game that's set in stone, DMC is the one that allows freeform combos. If they change that for NG2 it's going to be phenominal but as it stands there isn't the freedom in NG that is in DMC. I completed Gaiden Black on MNM, the combat is good but it's not miles ahead of DMC, in the end, the game becomes all about Izuna drops and OL charging. Sure there's skill involved but to reach those SSS combos in DMC you're going to need a lot more!
At the end of the day, I'm just happy that we have 2 amazing action games but if you don't realise how huge the DMC combat engine is, you're doing something wrong.
yeah ninja gaiden is the shlT, whatever says anything but smart says.
I'm not much of an action gamer, 95% of what I play are tactical FPS online but Ninja Gaiden has been in 3 of my systems now. I will be all over this game, along with Star Wars FU, Darksiders, Too Human and Saints Row 2. 2007 was the year of the FPS and 08 isn't all that bad ether but 08 is more of a year of the action gamer. Which is a good thing because all those gamers that have been waiting (like a PS3 fan) for action games will now get their fix.
LOL Jason, why post this comment in this zone? You just made a gamer comment and you're in the wrong section. I absolutely agree, 07 was year of the FPS and as you say there's a lot more action games coming this year which should appeal more to a PS3 fan. I'm ok with the odd FPS but I'd take a Ninja Gaiden over any FPS anyday. I loved the original on Xbox, Black was even better and Sigma was one of my favourite games last year. More of the same please with a little extra on top.
looks good, its in game just taken from a different angle. ALot of haters on this site.
Yeah. This is the only 360 exclusive I'm jealous of for this year unless gears 2 is released, but ps3 will prolly get an updated version sooner or later.
The ps4 you mean :)
If it is, and it most likely will be released on another system it will definitely be the "ps3."
Ninja Gaiden wasn't the best selling game on the Xbox due to it's difficulty and style of game (Action on an FPS console. I'm talking about Xbox1 btw) Funnily enough though, to me, Gaiden was a machine seller as I bought my console when it released. As long as they keep to the same level (hopefully better) NG2 will again be a system seller to me.
Sure, the classic nintendo version had it, but it made no sense, since when does a ninja fight spiders, and warewolves ( ESPECIALLY WITH NO EXPLANATION ) Warewolves appear at night, that picture is day. Ninja's go up against regular people, or super-human people. Not monsters. I bet they had to add monsters because if they kept showing "PEOPLE" getting mutilated, with extreme gore it couldnt be released.
My mate Bob the Ninja goes up against monsters all the time. Just because you don't see them, doesn't mean they're not there. He's just exceptionally good at his job. But you didn't hear that from me, I'd get assassinated if he found out it was me who told you! Seriously though, I kind of agree what you're saying in that for regions outside the US at least, too much people maiming will get severely cut =/
Just they call them fiends and they use the power of the dark dragon sword to become bigger monsters. If theis game was realistic hed be fighting all humans and that would suck. "Wherewolves appear at night" yeah and so do vampires right. Why are you upset at how they use fake creatures. Do they not follow your fake creature guidelines? The game has always been about fighting people and super crazy creatures. If it wasnt youd have none of the bosses from the first which made it so awsome. These creatures belog in a mythical ninja game. But what about relistic metal gear solid 2 that had a freaking vampire in it.
Now that's Next Gen Hack and Slash!! I love my 360, first day purchase for me.
Jump in Play Beyond
Completely agree with you. However, I'm really curious why you put in the PS3 quote at the end of your post...?
This game looks awesome and it also looks like 360 will love this game.
honestly graphics looks awful, like everything is cartoony plastic :/ disappointed.
I'm really looking forward to this game! More than any other one this year that's for sure. Those creatures look really tough too, hopefully they'll do guard breaking attacks :)
This is my opinion after all and you are not required to share in it.
I have NG Sigma, and while playing that one and looking at the screens of NG 2 for the 360 i feel that the graphics are too shiny, like there are not enough textures. For instance, his outfit looks like it is made of latex because it has no texture, if its leather it would not be as shiny or we could at least see some kind of pattern on it. This is a small complaint but just how i feel about it.
I might also be more susceptible to this as i play on a 120" screen from a 1080P panasonic projector, and everything is bigger and more obvious.
"THESE SCREENS ARE BULLSHOTS, FAKE, FAKE, FAKE!" -You guys are pathetic. Look we know your scared of Ninja Gaiden and Itagaki, its only natural. But just STFU already.
It's impossible to deny though that the screenshots published for this game look remarkably better than the gameplay footage published with it. Just go to the links of IGN.com that I posted (or go to Gametrailers for 720p footage) and compare the lighting quality. That alone gives these away as bullshots.
get over it, both of you.
Kick...ASS!!!! Oh, but wait, the droids said 360 had no games this year. Nevermind. I'll go back to waiting for Kiddy Big World.
Looking at that list don't move me at all & most of them are multi-platform games i hope 360 got more than that coming.
